COVID-19 vaccine outreach in DC has not been equitable. The process of registering for a vaccine currently relies on a web portal that is extremely difficult for seniors to use, as well as requiring access to a smartphone or computer, and reliable internet. The digital divide is a major hurdle for seniors in working-class communities who would like to register for a vaccine appointment.
The Medicare 4 All Working Group of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America is launching a pre-registration drive. We are very excited to be collaborating with Councilmember Janeese Lewis George and DC Working Families Party on this outreach campaign. Training will be provided!
